Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
There are two ways to fix this:
First Solution - Clean the Absorber pads
The absorber pads is filled with waste ink. Access the printer to get these two absorber pads and clean it with soap and running water. After cleaning return it back. To access the printer, first open the top cover for the ink cartridge. The absorber pads are seated under the cartridge carrier, when the cover is open the cartridge carrier will move to the middle leaving the two absorber pads accessible. Use a tweezer to lift up the pads.
Second Solution - Reset the Printer to clear the error
1. Turn off the printer (but make sure power cable is plugged in wall outlet).
2. Press and hold down the Stop/Reset button
3. While holding the Stop/Reset button, press and hold down Power button.
4. While holding down the Power button, release the Stop/Reset button.
5. While still holding the Power button, press the Stop/Reset button twice.
6. Now release the Power button.. (wait until it display "service mode")
7. Press the Stop/Reset button four times
8. Turn off the printer
When you turn on again the printer it will surely works again.
Much appreciated if you could give a four thumbs up rating for this solution.
